Season One[edit]

Raiders of the Lost Muppet [1.04][edit]


Gonzo: Let's synchronize our watches.
Scooter: We don't have any watches.
Gonzo: That's okay, I don't know what synchronize means anyway.

Fozzie: This fantasy is rated PG. We're under age.

Skeeter: Rowlf can pick up the scent.
Rowlf: I didn't know anybody dropped it.

Close Encounters of the Frog Kind [1.09][edit]

Kermit: They don't call me the fastest gum in the west for nothing, ya know.

Piggy: [reading to Robin] Once there was a little green tadpole and he got chased down a tadpole hole.
Gonzo: Hey, Piggy, don't you mean a little rabbit that got chased down a rabbit hole?
Piggy: I say it's a little green tadpole that got chased down a tadpole hole and unless you want to get shoved into a weirdo hole you'd better keep quiet!

Kermit: I never asked to be an uncle.
Skeeter: No one asks to be an uncle. Your big sister has babies, that makes you their aunt or uncle and them your niece or nephew.
Kermit: Oh, well that's different.

Gonzo's Video Show [1.10][edit]

Gonzo: [trying to adjust video camera] Hey, stay in focus. You're fuzzy.

Piggy: Personally, I want to be a producer.
Kermit: Gee, what do producers do, Piggy?
Piggy: They fire directors.

[after the Muppets decide to make a Star Wars movie]
Fozzie: Oh, I know who I can play! [grabs two belts] I could play Whewbacca the Cookie!
Kermit: Um, that's Chewbacca the Wookie, Fozzie.
Fozzie: That's what I said, Cuchacca the Bookie.

Fozzie's Last Laugh [2.03][edit]

Piggy: Scooter, if you had ten hot dogs and Skeeter took three of them, what would you have?
Fozzie: He'd have a tummy ache. Get it? Ha ha. Wokka wokka wokka.

Piggy: If you have to tell jokes then tell them to the wall.
Fozzie: Okay, hey wall, why did the man put a sweater on his hot dog? Because it was a chili dog. Wokka wokka wokka.

Fozzie: What's the difference between an orange?
Nanny: Go ahead, Fozzie, finish the joke.
Fozzie: It *is* finished. *That's* the joke.

The Muppet Museum of Art [2.11][edit]

Fozzie: How do you like my painting? I call it "Still-Life With Tomatoes."
[Scooter retches]

[Audience boos and throws tomatoes]

"Animal Allen": Dinner! [Laughs hysterically and falls off chair]
[Audience laughs]
"Fozzie Burns": No no, that's not right! You call a kangaroo in Scotland long distance. Get it? Wokka wokka wokka.
[Audience boos again and Fozzie gets hit with tomatoes]
"Fozzie Burns": Gee, it's a good thing the audience at home can't throw tomatoes at me.
[Home listeners throw tomatoes from their homes right into the theater at Fozzie]
"Fozzie Burns": Gosh, I wonder what you call a comedian that isn't funny?

[Audience laughs]
"Fozzie Burns": [Dejectedly] Say goodnight, Animal.

Fozzie: That's what I said.

Rowlf: Whatcha lookin’ for, Kermit?
Kermit: This, we can use it like a road map.
Rowlf: Yeah, but how will we get around once we’re inside Scooter’s body?
Animal: Me know, me know, wawawawawawa.
Kermit: Quick, follow Animal.
Fozzie: Animal, where are you?
Kermit: He disappeared.
Animal: Submarine, wawawawawawa.
Kermit: That’s perfect, Animal, this’ll work great, come on, let’s go.
Piggy: Hey, where do we get into Scooter’s body when we’re tiny?

Fozzie: Hamsters, get your free hamsters!
Kermit: Piggy, they are rats. Besides, in the original story, the mayor is supposed to be the bad guy.

Kermit: That book is 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Gonzo: Oh yeah, I forgot.

Kermit: Hey, did you guys see what I heard?

Miles: We gotta take five.
Fozzie: Five? Why can't we all go?

Fozzie: [Looking at ancient statues resembling Gonzo] These guys do kinda look like Gonzo's brothers.

Piggy: Don't push it, Fozzie.

In a fantasy where Kermit is a 1920s detective akin to Sam Spade

Kermit: On second thought, let's just call it even, keep the money.

Fozzie: We all have a lullaby.
Kermit: I think you mean alibi.
Fozzie: That's what I said, lullaby.

Gonzo: Awww, Piggy called me a nerd. Next I'll be the nerd of her dreams.

Gonzo: Weird is my middle name.

The Babies are on another planet in the court of a female despot, but they think they are at a rocket dealership. Live action from Flash Gordon is used
Piggy: Are you sure we are at a place to buy rockets?
One of the Queen's soldiers is shown
Fozzie: Sure, check out that man, he looks like a rocket salesman.
Soldier: Her Majesty, the Queen!
Footage of the female despot is shown
Fozzie: Ooh, the Queen! I bet she is going to buy an expensive rocket.
Queen: You have trespassed in my realm and must be punished!

Scooter: This is really weird.
Gonzo: Yeah, isn't it great?

Mr. Big: We don't serve comedians here.

Piggy: Here's your order, Kermie.
Kermit: Gee, thanks Piggy but I didn't order anything.

Fozzie: [Has body of fish instead of tail] Personally, I don't think this Mer-Bear stuff is so hot.
Kermit: Um, Fozzie, I think you have your imagination on backwards. Your legs are supposed to look like a fish, not your head.
Fozzie: Oh, I knew that.

Fozzie: Maybe I should tell them a joke.
Kermit: I don't think so, Fozzie, we're in enough trouble as it is.
Fozzie: Yeah... Huh?

Skeeter: What's that crunching sound?
Gonzo: [chewing] That? Uh, that must be termites! Didn't I tell you my nose is made of wood?
Skeeter: Uh-uh.
Gonzo: Uh-huh! It's true! Pinocchio was my cousin.

Piggy: You can't fool me. You stole that move from James Bond.
Gonzo: And I stole this move from Michael Jackson.
